Immersion, the Greatest Hook
People play certain genres of video games for definitive reasons. The underlying phenomenon of these manifested reasons, and the source of ”hooking” a player to a game, is Game/World Immersion. Immersion, therefore, is the single most important factor as to why people play certain genres of video games. The various elements that are present in such games, such as audio or visual, are there to create the sense of immersion and are the building blocks of it.
